The Whitney

I headed uptown for a quick trip to the Whitney which doesn't allow for photography. Here are a couple of stolen shots. I saw the Blues for Smoke show and Sinister Pop. I am not sure about the the title for the blues show. I would love to know what Scott Barretta thinks about it. I think jazz is more appropriate. I was surprised about the amount of Egglestons in both shows. Egglestons for me is nostalgic rather than sinister- context I guess.
